It is not about snowflake. It is that the world has changed. In the 60s to 90s doctors were respected. The change happened with the movement to give patients autonomy and all that anti-paternalistic medicine stuff.

Now nobody gives *hit about doctors. They are just there to do your bidding.

The change came when doctors sold their souls (and their businesses) to managed care providers and insurance companies and their TPAs for a steady stream of $$$$.

So doctors only have ourselves, collectively, to blame.

Anyway, everyone needs to realize that doctors only form a component of the healthcare system. We may be big fish in the pond but we are ultimately not the pond itself. The sooner we realize that, the better we move on from old hangups about prestige or respect.

I agree.

Spot on.

Doctor is just another healthcare professional.

Nothing inherently good or bad

Easily replaceable.

But at same time important

I think most drs have no problem with that.

But SMC also need to change. SMC set standards too high liao. Unrealistic.

How many phones do doctors working in public hospitals own? I have a friend who is a junior doctor who uses his personal phone for work too. Is this common or only AC and C use 2 phones?

Usually two phones.
Like most companies mohh give us a 25 dollar phone allowance per mth
This allowance is taxable

But 25 is good enough for sim only

We tend to have two phones.
To separate work vs personal.
HO MO and Reg needs it. Coz ppl dont like to share their personal number with the rest.
Any nurses doc or pharmacist or PSA can call u even if u have left the hospital. These days youngster like to switch off their work phones after office hours. Unacceptable.
I think it is only decent if a doc comes back to hosp, if he has forgotten to complete the discharge summary.

#Dedication or better still don't go back home

The very senior docs have one phone only. Coz nobody calls them haha

sorry to disagree (in a polite manner)
it is perfectly fine to be off work when one is off work. there is a reason shift system exists.
